i was hitting the stumble button in firefox yesterday when i literally stumbled upon this image. this most bizarre situation was apparently part of an urban art project from back in 2005 in new york city. i can only imagine what people who happened to walk outside and see this floating down the hudson thought. the project called “floating island” was the brainchild of artist robert smithson. its a rather interesting project in its sheer unusual nature. it’s one of those images that just confuses, certainly not a situation you would ever expect to see.
